Booz Allen Hamilton leadership excellence program conducted its annual reach-out activities over the summer with senior associates partnering with local and national non-profit organizations to share expert advice and extend consultancy services.
The initiative has been part of the company's lineup of activities for three years, giving top management an opportunity to do community work while sharing their skills and talents, Booz Allen said Sept. 9.
The company said the 10 non-profits that participated this year included The Children's Inn, a National Institutes of Health organization that provides services for seriously ill children and their families, the Give an Hour mental healthcare organization for veterans and the Johns Hopkins Children's Center.
Jo Ann Lata and Margaret Arney, senior associates at Booz Allen, led project teams for TCI and GAH, respectively, that used business analytics to design a new way to assess the non-profits' programs and provide fresh insight and direction to the administrators.
At the Johns Hopkins pediatric hospital, Senior Associate Shelley Merritt's team studied the donor system to come up with redesign suggestions to optimize the corporate advisory board's donation handling operations.
The other 2014 recipients to Booz Allen's leadership development program are:
- ALS Association
- American Red Cross
- Girls Inc.
- Meridian International Center
- Mt. Vernon Ladies Association
- Paralyzed Veterans of America
- Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund
